golden globes 2015

Every end and beginning of the year, we moviegoers focused on awards season. The peak surely and definitely is the Oscars. But before, let’s predict and warm-up with The Golden Globes. What I love about the award, is that they tend to be ‘kinder’ for underrated stars and they also give awards for TV series. What about this year?

Aired yesterday, 11th of January 2015, The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Award was raining with stars. Boyhood won a couple of big categories, like Best Director and Best Drama. But you know, other than the winners, we have expectations and personal opinions on many elements of the show. So, here’s mine :

  • I personally love Tina Fey, so I love her being the host (for the third time) with her gal pal and partner-in-crime, Amy Poehler. Would like to see them both in the upcoming movie, Sisters.
  • Best acceptance speech : George Clooney, Amy Adams, Patricia Arquette, Maggie Gylenhaal, Michael Keaton, also Common and John Legend
  • I personally were more blown away by Birdman than Boyhood, but I do love Richard Linklater’s movies before. When he said that Boyhood is his personal movie, then that explains his commitment to do a movie with 12 years in the making.
  • Patricia Arquette deserve the award as well. When I saw her in Boyhood, I thought ‘she’s a great actress. I don’t think she has won anything.’ It’s great that she gets this, hopefully she’ll earn an Oscar too. She depicts all mothers playing the mother in the movie.
  • One of her her contenders were Emma Stone (second Globe nomination), loved her in Birdman. I didn’t see Andrew Garfield anywhere near her.
  • Maggie Gylenhaal and Jake Gylenhaal were so cute together that night, both talented and wonderful. I’d like to see her in Honorable Woman.

  • Michael Keaton is one winner I thought really earn his award. Maybe Birdman couldn’t be so grand without him as the lead (Norton also a great addition, but they are so solid together). It’s good to know his background from his speech.
  • No one really surprise if Amy Adams won this year. I still haven’t seen Big Eyes, but the woman have done her homework consistently as a great actress for past years. Her contenders in Best Actress in Comedy or Musical; Emily Blunt (she’s so stunning with her white dress), Helen Mirren (I loved her in A Hundred-Foot Journey), Julianne Moore and (why hasn’t anyone brought up how wonderful a very young girl get this nomination?) Quvenzhané Wallis for Annie.
  • One LOL moment was when I read this on twitter about Frances McDormand

  • Also, it seems Gone Girl wasn’t amongst the favorite or felt invisible, though have multiple nominations. I don’t think I see David Fincher or other cast, only Rosamund Pike.
  • I’m quite happy for Jennifer Anniston for her award (I’m interested to see her in Cake ) though she seem quite tense during the show
  • Amongst best joke of the show, was Amy Poehler’s : “Jennifer Aniston is here tonight, nominated for the film Cake. We should explain for the Hollywood people in the room: Cake is like a fluffy desert that people eat on their birthdays … And birthdays are thing people celebrate when they admit that they’ve aged”.
  • Again, if Birdman did not won for Best Screenplay, something is wrong
  • When I saw Eddie Redmayne in My Week with Marilyn and Les Miserables, I thought how this man surely looks average but humble. He’s quite passionate of doing his work. I have got to see him in The Theory of Everything
  • I did not know much of George Clooney’s work behind the camera after I saw him getting the Cecil B. Demille Award. But I can’t believe they only put that scene from Up in The Air. That’s one movie that made me starting to like him, and inspired the blog.
  • I loved how Lupita Nyong’O looked geeky by adding glasses in her outfit on stage
  • I love three leading cast of Foxcatcher, but it’s a shame seeing how Foxcatcher also missed out some winning. Better luck at Oscars?
  • I can’t comment much on TV category, but to say I loved Allison Janney in Mom. I did want to see Normal Heart.
